About Zhang Ping Shui Xian Oolong Tea

This unique and rare oolong is much loved by local people. It doesn’t have any green taste but comes with an elegant pure orchid flavour.
When taking this tea, you will feel a scent of floral aroma and it will then turn into a mellow orchid fragrance. A sweetness taste will also gradually appear after that.

*Every tea brick weighs around 10g.

The Technology of Production

Picking Tea

The process of making Zhang Ping Shui Xian comprises the stages of picking, sun withering, setting, and stirring alternated with setting, fixation, rolling, compressing, and drying.

Stirring and setting are the two very important steps. It makes the tea leaves bent into each other, while the cell wall of the tea leaves will be broken, enhancing the oxidation process to some extent. During the process of oxidation, more aromatic substances will be released. The tea makers with more experience can produce a higher quality Zhang Ping Shui Xian.

After these steps, Zhang Ping Shui Xian will be compressed into small square bricks and then be slowly baked for around 5-9 days using a charcoal fire.
